Complimentary Risk Management Academy – Federated Insurance

Federated Insurance is offering complimentary risk management training November 5-7. Through this valuable session, you will discover methods you can use immediately to help protect profits by reducing risk at your business.

Many have designated a key person as their risk manager. This person is supported by your company’s top management and is both responsible and accountable for identifying loss exposures and implementing risk management solutions. This seminar’s objective is to help your risk manager learn exposures, connect with peers from across the country and apply these best practices within your business.
